Lidge and Utley make the All-Star team

Sunday, July 6, 2008 ·

Phillies' second baseman, Chase Utley, and closer, Brad Lidge, will represent the club at next week's all-star game in Yankees Stadium. [Phillies] Also, go vote for Pat Burrell as he will be up against David Wright in the NL's final vote (another popularity contest) as it is left up to the fans.

Chase Utley was the NL's leading vote getter as he received 3,889,602 votes to be the team's starter at second base. Chase Utley currently leads the majors with 24 home runs and he is currently hitting .295, while knocking in 67 runs and scoring 65. Brad Lidge has been absolutely phenomenal for the Phillies has he has converted all of his save opportunties. He also has 47 strike outs in 35 innings and a 0.77 ERA. Pat Burrell may be the most deserving outfielder as he leads all outfielders in slugging and OPS, while he's only second in OBP.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
